Bookbinding Starter Kits
Welcome to The Idle Bindery
The Idle Bindery is a small bookbinding and artist studio specializing in custom wedding albums and hand bound books and photo albums made from beautiful Japanese papers and silk book cloths.
I also host workshops in collaboration with Marmor Paperie, a paper marbler, and sell bookbinding kits so you can learnt the craft of bookbinding yourself.
Reviews & Testimonials
This album was beautiful, exactly what we were after. The quality of the construction was great and the fabric cover looked wonderful. It made for a great, personal gift once complete with photos. The service was excellent as well.

It is a sheer delight writing this email. I purchased this album for my sister, her wedding gift. I was in contact with The Idle Bindery about other albums, explanations on the paper, method etc. Amy was incredibly generous and patient with my endless questions! It arrived on time and was so beautifully packaged, such care and mindfulness. The album was breathlessly gorgeous in detail and craft. I was so impressed i wanted to keep it for myself :) I would highly recommend The Idle Bindery for the care, thoughtfulness, attention to detail in their craft and for customers. Thank you so much- my sister was deeply moved and I feel so good to have given her something where she can cherish her big day for years. Thank you Amy!!
